MIJAS will officially open its new ITV centre in the last week of April. This will mean that the residents of Mijas, Fuengirola and Benalmadena will not have to travel to Malaga or San Pedro de Alcantara in order to comply with the inspections.
Standing for ‘Inspeccion Tecnica de Vehicles’ the ITV is the Spanish equivalent of an MOT and a valid certificate is absolutely essential for any car travel.
Works were supervised by the Urban Planning Department of the Mijas Town Hall, and received an investment of approximately €2 million. It is expected to create directly around 20 jobs.
The centre is found in the industrial area Molino de Viento and covers a surface of 4,000 square metres. It will provide five lines of inspection, two of which will be used for light vehicles, two for all types of four-wheeled vehicles and one for motorcycles.
It is expected to receive a total of around 60,000 vehicles per year from Mijas, Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena.
